Valued particularly for its flavor, this Japanese burpless cucumber hybrid is easy to grow and a generous producer of 8" long cucumbers, up to 1" in diameter, with fine white spines and smooth deep-green skin. The vigorous plants tolerate heat very well.
A widely adapted, high yielding, pickling cucumber excellent for pickling and fresh eating. Blocky, dark green fruits are straight with white spines and mature to a length of 3" by 1". It has a gyneocious flowering habit (plants produce almost all female flowers) so it must be interplanted with 10 to 15% pollinator plants. Disease resistant/tolerant to Cucumber Mosaic Virus, Downey Mildew, Powdery Mildew and Angular Leaf Spot and other maladies.
